Another Black and White Card

When the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog DT chose Black and White for their weekly challenge, ideas just started popping in my head.

Last week I was over on Paulette's Create with TLC site and found the sentiment I used for this card. I knew when I saw the sentiment that it, with the Phindy's Place image, "Skinny Sale", was a perfect combination. You can find the image at Phindy's Place store, HERE. I colored her with Copics and put her in black(makes you look thinner or at least makes you think you look skinnier) capris and a red(one of my favorite colors) shirt. I also gave her my dyed red hair color. I think I see a resemblance, especially if I don't get my eating under control.As I mentioned, the sentiment is from Create with TLC, one of my favorite places for sentiments. Paulette is so generous with her free sentiments, and only expects a "thank you" in a comment in return. The papers are from all over the place. The gingham is from Bev Rochester. The floral background paper is from the Shabby Princess' free Urban Kiwi Kit and the embossed flower paper is from Just So Scrappy 2's Denim and Lace kit. I found the ribbon flowers in the sewing aisle at WalMart and stuck it on a chipboard flower(actually matches the Urban Kiwi papers) I picked up in the sale items at Michael's a long time back.

OK, I really have to get on with my day. I still have miles to go before I sleep.
